Summer is my favourite season — I love its hot, earthy colours, especially the parched brittleness of the dry landscape. There’s something primal about the way heat stores in the ground, then moves up through you, like something alive, as you walk over it.

I took these pictures in nearby Boorowa last year using my Olympus Pen EE-2 half-frame camera. With a population of just 2,450, the town may be small, but it holds a glut of photographic inspiration — the first shot is from the local cemetery, while the second is from the balcony of The Boorowa Hotel (where the counter meals are exceptionally cheap!).
